Doctors recommend Bellefit compression girdles and corsets for the treatment of these medical conditions which are most commonly experienced by women after childbirth.
The rectus abdominis muscles are found on the abdomen and are commonly referred to as the abs or “6 pack” muscles. There is a small band of tissue, called the linea alba, that connects the right and left side of the rectus abdominis muscles and is located at the midline of the body. Diastasis recti is a condition in which there is a weakening of the linea alba allowing for an abnormally large separation between the rectus abdominis muscles. This widening of the linea alba allows for bulging of the abdomen and an appearance of still appearing pregnant after delivery.
A hernia is the result of an organ or tissue protruding through an opening in the muscles. While a hernia can occur in many areas of the body, they most commonly develop in the abdominal and groin areas during pregnancy.
Developing a hernia during the course of your pregnancy is not always an immediate concern; in fact, most physicians recommend waiting until after you give birth to have the hernia treated. However, hernias rarely, if ever, go away on their own and must eventually be treated. Left untreated, a hernia will progressively worsen in severity and eventually become more serious can eventually lead to life-altering complications.
Back pain, especially in the lumbar or sacral regions, is a common condition experienced during pregnancy. In fact, nearly 1 out of every 2 pregnant women can expect to experience acute or chronic pain the in lumbar or sacral regions of the spine. The pain in these areas is typically temporary and a direct result of pregnancy-induced weight gain and hormonal changes, and often contributes to pain, sleep-disturbances, and other discomforts experienced during the course of the pregnancy.
Hip pain can be debilitating — especially when you are tasked with carrying a baby. The extra pressure and strain on your joints causes hip pain that pregnant women often misdiagnose and neglect to seek treatment for. Hip pain comes from various sources during pregnancy. Most women start to develop the joint pain during the second trimester, right as you start to develop a “baby bump.” The change in your walking style, the loosening of your ligaments holding together the sacroiliac joints, and sleeping on your side later in pregnancy all can add to hip pain. Another cause is pressure on your sciatic nerve, formally called Sciatica. Sciatica can cause pain, numbness, and/or tingling in the buttocks, hips, and thigh. This is where appointments with your physician are especially useful, as Sciatica can lead to serious complications.
Subluxation of symphysis is also known as symphysis pubis dysfunction (SPD). This is a condition that causes excessive movement of the pubic symphysis. The symphysis is a midline, nonsynovial joint that connects the right and left superior pubic ram. Because of the misalignment of the pelvis, pain is associated with this diagnosis. Basically, this joint holds the right and left sides of the pelvic muscles together. When this joint becomes soft, pelvic muscles and bones move more freely. With the weight of a growing baby, this can become a painful condition.
The perineum is the tissue that is located between the vagina and the anus. There are layers to the tissue being skin, subcutaneous tissue, and the pelvic floor muscles. The pelvic floor muscles are important muscles in regards to the passing of stool and urine. During vaginal delivery, the perineal tissue is stretched with the passing of the baby, mainly the head and shoulders, which can lead to tears of the perineal tissue. There are different grades ranging from 1 to 4 of perineal lacerations. Grades 1 and 2 are most common. Grades 3 and 4 are more severe with tearing of muscles and the anal sphincter. An episiotomy is an intentional perineal laceration made by the physician at the time of delivery. This was performed routinely some number of years ago, but is no long a routine procedure. Episiotomies are usually performed if there is concern for grade 3 or 4 perineal laceration or if there is concern to deliver the baby quickly.
The uterus is held in place by pelvic ligaments and muscles. The muscles can become weak or stretched out leading to a lack of support for the uterus. When the muscles become weak, the uterus may sag or descend from its normal position into the vagina. A uterovaginal prolapse is classified by its stage. A complete prolapse means part of the uterus has slipped so far that it protrudes from the vaginal opening. The difference with an incomplete uterovaginal prolapse is that the uterus becomes partially displaced into the vagina, but it does not protrude out.
The pelvic region of the body is the lowest part of the abdomen between the hip bones. The perineum in women refers to the area between the vagina and anus. Pelvic and perineal pain involves discomfort in either or both areas. Because the pelvic area and perineum are located near various organs, nerves, and muscles, pelvic and perineal pain is very common in women. The pain may come and go or be constant. The quality of the pain may vary based on the cause. The pain may be sharp, burn, or ache. Depending on the cause of the pain, symptoms may worsen when you move or use the bathroom.
Lower abdominal, inguinal, and groin pain is experienced due to the stretching of ligaments around the womb. As the womb becomes larger to accommodate the baby, the ligaments that hold the uterus in place must stretch. A certain ligament known as the round ligament is the culprit of your pain. This ligament attaches the front portion of the uterus to the groin. Normally, this ligament contracts and relaxes slowly when you sneeze, cough, or make rapid movements. During pregnancy everything speeds up and more weight is applied to the ligament. Due to the enlarging of the uterus during pregnancy, the round ligament is stretched and contracts more quickly, therefore causing pain.

Fit as Expected
Fit over exceeded my expectations. So I have owned several expensive girdles. I must say that this is he best thing that happened to me at 9 weeks postpartum. I had been hesitant about ordering it just because I felt that I already owned 2 fairly new girdles and 2 postpartum compression panties. Plus I was still purchasing things for the baby right after delivery but it took me a photo shoot to realize my pelvic area just right where the uterus is located was still quite bloated/swollen. After that day of the photo shoot which was my babie’s but was asked to jump in, I was freaking out on my lower pelvic area appearance. I had tried to wear one of the girdles I had after delivery and it was the most uncomfortable thing! I felt useless with it on, I felt like I wasn’t able to move as quickly as I wanted for my baby. Long story short I have been wearing it for 3 days for about 6 hours a day and I already see and feel the difference. I was discouraged by different answers on the internet saying after 6-7 weeks it was too late to even purchase one due to relaxin leaving your body. Well I’m 10 weeks postpartum today looking and feeling amazing after just using it for 3 days/18 hours total. Thank you Bellefit! Happy Customer!
Best comfortable wear.
I never write reviews, but I made time to do so. (:

Loved how it made me feel and definitely starting seeing the benefits of wearing the girdkenvery quickly. However it unites frequently on the bottom and don’t like the marks it leaves on my butt when I wear clothes.

Buy it or regret it…..! This girdle is excellent, after having my second child the last month I started using my girdle 8 day a after giving birth. I know it going to work because a friend in the gym tell me about bellefit, she used in her 2nd pregnancy, what I didn’t know if it’s going to work that quick. After only 1 month of use my belly is almost the way it was before being pregnant, just need to do some abs exercise, but I’m not In rush. I’m feeling so confident. Nobody believes that I gave birth to a baby just once month ago.
Their customer services are great, I had some issues with my girdle they resolved promptly.

Love this product was tight at first used it for two days and saw a big change right away purchased a XL need to order the next size down. Pregnancy weight 181.2 pounds after birth 169 pounds after two days with the dual closure girdle 140 pounds with eating right.
(verified owner) – 08/13/2018
I had to exchange the original size I bought so I wasn’t able to wear it until I was 2 weeks postpartum. The first day was a bit uncomfortable, it took some getting used to. But it’s been amazing so far. I’ve been wearing it for less then a week and I’ve already noticed a difference! I would highly recommend this to everyone. It’s discreet under clothes and makes everything fit better. I’m excited to see what continuous wearing does!
I didn’t start wearing this with my first child until several weeks post C-section. It really helped with my recovering process. With our second child I started to wear this the day I checked out of the hospital and noticed a dramatic difference in my recovering. It was a lot easier to move around (vs. last time). Also noticed tummy got flatter a lot faster this time. Highly recommend this product.

I a currently 6 weeks in and the Girdle is helping get my stomach down
(verified owner) – 08/26/2018
This is a must for postpartum mommies! Especially c section moms! The compression makes your tummy and scar feel sooooo much better! And you feel good about your image too!!
(verified owner) – 09/25/2018
What an absolutely great product! After my c-section this was exactly what I needed to full comforted and secure in the belly area. I have way more confidence when I’m wearing it, too!! It fits great, I followed the size chart and had no issues with size. I highly recommend it.
(verified owner) – 10/02/2018
High quality. Breathable yet compresses well
(verified owner) – 10/05/2018
So happy with my bellefit purchase. I was a little hesistant with the size after taking the sizing help but it was exactly the size I needed. I’m 3 months PP from a c section and this bellefit makes me feel “put together”
I did a lot of research trying to to find the best and most useful corset/girdle that provides back support, cesarean recovery, reduce abdominal skin, excess water weight (bloating), and stays in place while active. I couldn’t find one that covered all my wants and needs until I discovered Bellefit. I did the size chart to determine my size but unfortunately it was wrong, but exchanging a size small for a medium was easy and didnt take very long to get the new size. I am 5′ 6″ and weigh 132 after birth, pre pregnancy weight was 123.
(verified owner) – 10/26/2018
I loved this product! I followed the size guide and it fit well. If you follow the directions to get it on then it is much easier to close. I didn’t believe when people said that it helped reduce the pain and increase movement after birth but after using it I immediately felt such support. I wore it almost 24 hours a day for the first week home because of the support it provided! Highly recommend this to all moms
(verified owner) – 10/30/2018
I loved this girdle so much after delivery. Not only did it help me feel good and confident about recovery but it also helped me with back posture! The material used for it is nice and breatheable, never got sweaty wearing it. I highly recommend this to any expecting mamas or one that already had a baby.
(verified owner) – 11/18/2018
I think it worked miracles. It’s almost unbelievable especially for new moms not sure what to expect.
(verified owner) – 11/27/2018
When I found out I was pregnant for the 3rd time I knew I wanted to have something to help with my recovery. I had a c-section with my 2nd and I was shocked at how slow my body recovered. I knew there was a chance of another c-section because of Cholestasis. Once I found out I would have the section again I went on and bought myself a bellefit.
I had to wait 8 days after my section until I was ready to try the bellefit on. Just like all the reviews I’ve read, it was a game changer!!! When I would walk my belly would jiggle and hurt my incision, with the support from the bellefit that was gone! My belly is going down after much faster after this section with the help of bellefit.
I would recommend the bellefit to anyone who is interested. It is worth the investment
(verified owner) – 12/11/2018
After my fourth C-section for this upon returning home from the hospital around day five. I started with an extra large and six weeks later and in a medium. wearing the girdle allowed me to get out of bed, feel pulled together, and pain-free. I would not have been able to function without it
I highly recommend use of Bellefit after giving birth. It immediately made me feel more like my pre pregnancy self so I could focus on caring for my little one.
(verified owner) – 01/14/2019
Great support from the girdle. I needed to exchange my L for an XL (if you’re on the line between sizes, going smaller may not work!). Customer service was excellent and prompt.
(verified owner) – 02/08/2019
Fit was perfect!

I love my girdle it makes me feel more confident of my body while I’m out wearing my jeans .
After 3 C sections this girdle has been so comfy to my tummy n made my incision less painful . I love it I wish I had it w my other pregnancy .
I’m getting ready to order a small my medium already feels lose
(verified owner) – 02/20/2019
Amazing results… at day 6 postpartum, I was already close to pre pregnancy weight and measurements. I went from a large to medium in 3-4days after wearing bellefit 24/7. Last day weigh in pregnant was 190. After delivery and wearing bellefit right after delivery(was ok with OB) for 24hrs weigh in was 175 and stomach inflammation went down significantly. Two weeks postpartum and my weight is 168 and I’m almost back to my pre pregnancy measurements waist wise. I went from a large to medium within one week. This product truely works and gives amazing fast results and helps so much with recovering fast and feeling great about yourself. Highly recommend it.

I got my Bellefit Dual Closure Girdle to use after my second pregnancy. I ordered the size small and started wearing it 2 days postpartum when I got discharged. My pre-pregnancy weight was 130lbs, 165-170lbs at 40 weeks, and then 145 at 4 days postpartum. When I used the size chart, I was between a small and medium and ordered both. But the size small ended up fitting perfectly on the looser hooks and now at 14 days postpartum am wearing it on the tightest hooks. The girdles also bring a small extender which is awesome.
(verified owner) – 03/17/2019
I just put on the girdle for 3 days and I saw tremendous results. My belly reduced greatly. What I love the most that it is very comforable even for hot weather.
(verified owner) – 06/08/2019
I left the hospital with one of the bulky wrap-around velcro girdles, which was great for the first few days when my skin and incision were still really sensitive, but I couldn’t leave the house it in since it is so visible under (or over cause that is the only way to make it work in some cases) clothing! The Bellefit is discreet and the support feels great! Highly recommend!

Begin wearing after birth on the day that you are discharged from the hospital. It’s optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth; however, you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle at any time during the first 6 months after the delivery.
Here’s why: Still present after childbirth for up to 6 months are hormones secreted during pregnancy. These hormones, Estrogen, progesterone and relaxin loosen the abdominal muscles, the pelvic structure and supporting ligaments and joints. Bellefit works together with your body’s natural process of recovery.
As a new mother, you likely have questions about what you can and cannot do after giving birth. There will be a period of rest and recovery following the birthing process that you’ll be recommended to take. So, how do you know if a postpartum girdle is right for you or not?
Among the many benefits that comes with wearing a postpartum girdle is how well it keeps things in place. With pregnancy weight being an issue for many women who have just given birth, a postpartum girdle helps compress the abdomen, giving you a seamless look that can be worn under dresses, skinny jeans, and sweatpants.It also provides extra support for the lower back which has a tendency to hurt whenever weight is gained.
Having a garment that keeps everything in place makes it easier for you to exhibit good posture and prevent muscle strain. That means that you won’t risk injuring yourself while you work to lose the extra weight you gained while pregnant.Bellefit products are designed to maximize comfort while providing support in all the right places. We offer a variety of styles of girdles to choose from, too, making it easy to find one that you love wearing.
The fact that your hips spread while pregnant to accommodate childbirth is quite the phenomenon. Your pelvis also makes room for the birthing process which may or may not include a vaginal delivery.
With the right corset or girdle, you’ll be able to narrow the distance between your hips and go back to looking like yourself once again.
As you work to lose the pregnancy weight, you’ll feel your hips and lower back being supported by the undergarment. Binding your hips in the eight weeks after giving birth helps pelvic joints go back to where they were prior to your pregnancy. That way, you won’t feel them being as spread-out as before.
A surge of hormones is something to be expected when pregnant. Don’t be concerned if your mood swings all over the place. It’s incredibly normal to feel the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
You will get back to your normal self soon. Even if you don’t, you’ll start to feel better about your situation. If your feelings of sadness or depression don’t go away, it’s time to speak to a licensed therapist who can help you on a clinical level. Your issue is far more complicated than just needing some extra rest or help around the house.
Your hormones will eventually settle and you’ll feel more at ease in your body. Don’t be surprised if there is a transitional period from giving birth to getting back to your pre-pregnancy self. You’ve got time, and with Bellefit, you’ve got tools! Our postpartum girdles have helped women from around the world feel more confident about their bodies after delivering.
As a pregnant woman, you’re required to follow lots of advice. The following list provides valuable insight and advice on what not to do after giving birth to a child. By following it and the suggestions given to you by your physician, you decrease the chances delaying your recovery.
– Strenuous Exercising
– Junk Food
– Certain Types of Fish
It’s important that you steer clear of these things until your body has had time to fully heal and that you’re no longer breastfeeding your child. That way, you’re not taking any chances on you or your baby’s health. Instead, you’re postponing some of the things you may really be looking forward to doing, eating or drinking.
Yes! The front hook and eye closures of the Dual-Closure are designed with the incision in mind.
The main difference between the two styles is that the Dual-Closure (also known as a Double Corset) has the side zipper closure as well. Underneath the zipper are two sets of adjustable hook and eye closures (one near the top and one near the bottom).
Because it has both closure options, the Dual-Closure is able to be adjusted the most out of all of the other styles. Many moms like having the option of both closures in one girdle to also be able to choose which method is more convenient for them throughout their recovery. For example, in the beginning when your swelling is at its peak, you may find that it is easier for you to use just the front closure. Once you get a little farther along you may find that just using the zipper closure is more convenient for you.
Yes! The Dual-Closure is an excellent option for either delivery method.
The Dual-Closure is not bulky and is flush with your skin; however because of the front closure location, it may be slightly visible underneath certain fabrics or if you are wearing a fitted top. Keep in mind though that your comfort and healing process is the most important factor!
Yes! Keep in mind though that we generally recommend a Girdle with Hooks (Corset) after an abdominal surgery that may or may not be related to pregnancy. As always, consult with your physician to make sure that a compression garment is the best choice for your recovery.
As your body transforms after your delivery, you can adjust the settings when slightly more or less compression is needed.
The Dual Closure has two rows of hook and eye closures in the front that are separated by an inch apart and a lateral zipper on the side with two sets of hook and eye closures underneath.
Since the Dual-Closure is adjustable, it is suitable for all body type shapes.
Begin wearing your Dual-Closure the day that you are discharged from the hospital or as soon as you are ready to wear it after the delivery. It’s optimal to begin wearing Bellefit right after birth; however, you will still see results if you begin to wear your girdle at any time during the first 6 months after the delivery. As always, consult with your physician to make sure the Dual-Closure is right for you since every recovery process is so unique.
Wearing Bellefit is beneficial for women during any stage of their recovery journey after giving birth. Depending on where you are in your journey, you can choose a postpartum girdle or an abdominal binder. This handy guide will help you choose the ideal style for you.
Girdles provide all-around coverage of your core, rear-end and groin área to support your lower abdomen.
Girdles compress front-to-back and around the core to provide support of your groin and hold heavy flow pads in place.
Girdles must be worn with underwear. They are designed with a convenient access flap so you can use the restroom, change your pads, etc.
Girdles are designed to be easier for you to put on after giving birth.
Girdles can be worn day & night.
Ab Binders cover your mid-core. They are designed to reduce your waist and give you an hourglass effect.
Ab Binders don’t support the postpartum lower abdomen area as well as Girdles.
Ab Binders don’t support the c-section incision.
Bellefit Binders are made with triple-layered fabrics which makes them fit firmly around the waist.
Ab Binders are not recommended to wear right after giving birth.
Ab Binders are recommended for daytime use only.
Girdles are best for wearing after giving birth, especially after a c-section.
Ab Binders are recommended 15-20 days after giving birth. This varies based on your unique recovery.
Ab Binders are designed with three layers of compression fabrics. This gives them a firm and smoothing fit around the waist.
Bellefit girdles have a reinforced front panel that reaches down to the lower abdomen designed to support the post-baby pooch.
Both the Girdle and Binder are effective within their purpose.
Girdles are designed to support the postpartum belly, help reduce swelling and reduce after-birth pains.
Binders are designed to instantly reduce inches off your waistline and give you a more visible hourglass figure.
Abdominal Binders can be slid up or down your core to give you proper coverage if you have a long torso.
Girdles can be slightly customized to add or remove length by adjusting the settings on the groin closure flap.
For additional length all girdles come with a free attachable extender.
The styles which are most adjustable are the:
Any Corset has 2-3 rows of hook & eye closures and an adjustable groin flap. These features allow you to tighten or loosen the girdle for a customized fit.
Dual-Closure Girdles have 2-3 rows of hook & eye closures, a side zipper closure and an adjustable groin flap. These features allow you to tighten or loosen the girdle for a customized fit.
Abdominal Binder Corset is very adjustable with 3 rows of hook-and-eye closures. It can be slid up or down to find your most comfortable coverage.
ALL GIRDLES will give you results if you wear them within the first year after giving birth. Binders can be worn during any lifestage, so if it’s been over a year since giving birth, Abdominal Binders are the right solution for shaping, waist reduction and an hourglass waist effect.
ALL GIRDLES can be worn after giving birth when you are discharged from the hospital. Wearing ANY GIRDLE day & night will provide great ‘snapback’ results if worn within a year after giving birth.
Binders are a great companion item to the Girdles when you want to shape your waistline and wear your favorite outfits.
There are two Girdle Styles designed to be safer for recovery after Hysterectomy or abdominal surgery:
If you’re not recently postpartum or have never been pregnant, Abdominal Binders are the right solution for shaping, waist reduction and an hourglass waist effect.
ALL GIRDLES can be worn for recovery of Diastasis Recti.
Girdles are designed to be easier to put on after giving birth.
Abdominal muscles affected by Diastasis are weak. Binders have very firm compression and can be more challenging to put on if you have diastasis.
